Learning a language – don’t be put off!

One of the main things that puts people off learning a new language is that they think it will be difficult.

It’s hard to become bilingual, isn’t it? And multilingual? Forget it! Multilingual people must be geniuses, right? Or at least smarter than me.

That may not be the case. Learning a new language is like weightlifting for your brain! The more you lift weights, the stronger your muscles become. So the more you learn languages, the better your ability to do so becomes!

Once you’ve learned one language, you can apply the strategies you’ve learned to new languages. You’ll easily be able to skip from French lessons in New York to taking Russian classes in Chicago.
